Yes you can. You will need a usb drive. 4GB would be more than enough. If you go to www.c64.com you can download just about every commercial game that was available at the time. Many demo's are available there as well.

This product is still in Pre-Order status so any information below is based on current information that may not be officially confirmed as yet.
Yes, however you will need to locate a way to transcode the audiotapes to a digital file to transfer to the content to a readable file format
Fortunately there is a massive retro-gaming community that will be able help you with this, there are some solutions located on popular creator youtube channels online
As noted above a lot will depend on how The C64 is able to load games, I am hoping it will be a case of creating a .wav file from the cassette and using that, however it has not yet been confirmed which format files will need to be.
I Hope this helps and Thank you for using Argos Q&A
